Re: Idiom Pro
Apple created its own codec a combination between video and audio. R-2 chip. They claimed 12 millisecond turn around making latency non-existent to us humans Thatís fast but not super fast. I few decades ago I was wiring with and assembling parts with 3 millisecond dead times. That was pretty fast in its day.
Enough of that passing through memory lane.
No codec, but tons of cameras and amp opportunities. Iím guessing that Cirrus has at least 4 or more amps and if the number of camera is correct 20-30 clcs inside. Once someone wrote 12-15 cameras. Donít know if that is correct.
Now the most interesting piece for me anyway. Cirrus is just releasing new CLCs which have more memory much faster in execution speed, and can remove more passive parts. I donít think that that is by accident. I am guessing that those clcs coming are less than 10 milliseconds of latency probably around 5 or 6. The rule of thumb was the sensor control had to be twice the dynamic speed as the main controller.
That new product from Apple is really really cool. My guess based on the number of cameras maybe is that Cirrus has some haptics with the spatial sound amps and a ton of clcs $15 asp maybe more. Everyone thought that this was coming in Oct time frame, itís Dec at best and probably Jan.
